Fishing on the Kern – California landscape oil painting – Karen Winters

November 29th, 2009

“Fishing the Upper Kern”
14 x 18 oil on canvas
Not for sale – gift

This painting, a gift for our son, was painted from a photo reference he took last summer on a backpack and fishing trip to the Upper Kern River, near Johnsondale, California.

We have rafted on the Kern many times and might again, some day. I’m not crazy about class 4 and 5 rapids any more, but the little ones are just fine. I understand that this part of the river is in the Golden Trout Wilderness. I don’t know how many golden trout they caught, because the wild ones are pretty wily.

  1. Wow, Karen, this is really beautiful! I like the feeling of light filtering thru the trees.

  3. Love it, Karen…
    You’ve inspired me… now I’ll have to go up to my son’s cottages to stay a while and paint!!
    See you this weekend!

  4. How great for your son to have. Like Linda T, I love the light through the trees and on the water. I really miss creeks and rivers out here–we only get water in ours after heavy rains.
